EMBC South Korea + vacation


Each PhD candidate at Technical University of Denmark (DTU) is advised to aim for writing six peer-reviewed articles during their employment. Three of these are conference contributions. I was fortunate that my conference locations turned out to be Osaka, Japan… Orlando, USA,  and finally Jeju Island, South Korea.

At this point I had already turned in my PhD, so I extended my vacation to visit Beijing, Hong Kong, Seoul and Busan. Wouhuu!!!!

The EMBC conference still covers pretty much every topic on biomedical engineering, and is a great source of inspiration for aspiring scientists and engineers. Unfortunately the focus is still highly on students  and the conferencs could greatly benefit from more industrial contributions.
